‘Pitch Perfect 3’ update: Anna Kendrick and Rebel Wilson Return

Fans of the movie rejoice! Seems like your wishes have been heard. It was just reported yesterday that there are possibilities that the lead protagonist of the movie Anna Kendrick won’t be returning for the third instalment of “Pitch Perfect” after director Elizabeth Banks confirmed that a third part is in the making. It can now be confirmed that Anna will certainly be a part of “Pitch Perfect 3” it and she is not the only one who is said to be returning but Fat Amy aka Rebel Wilson will also return to the movie.

According to Yahoo! Movies, Universal has locked in 21st July 2017 as the movie’s official release date which will see Anna return as Beca Mitchell (one of the leaders of the group Bellas). Elizabeth Banks who directed “Pitch Perfect 2” is also on board as one of the producers but it is still not clear whether she will be directing the movie or not. Paul Brooks of Gold Circle Entertainment and Max Handelman are also returning as producers for the movie.

As it was reported earlier, Kay Cannon who wrote the first two films is also in talks to write the third one – “Pitch Perfect 3”. The prequel of the movie that released in May this year took in $259.7 million worldwide after a brilliant performance at the box office. The first instalment was also equally successful as it had managed to gross $115.4 million worldwide. The movies star Kendrick, Wilson and Brittany Snow as significant characters with the previous movie introducing Hailee Steinfeld as the newest and important member of the group.

The good thing is that there are no movies planned to release on 21st July 2017 except for an untitled animated film from DreamWorks. It was truly a delight to see Anna’s tweet about the movie to confirm her participation. Apart from “Pitch Perfect 3”, she has “The Accountant” with Ben Affleck and “Mr. Right” with Sam Rockwell on her platter.
